Physical Agility Test (P.A.T.)

PHYSICAL AGILITY TEST (P.A.T.)

The Physical Agility Test (P.A.T.) is given after you have successfully completed the written examination. The P.A.T. is usually done on weekends and administered by the Rio Hondo Police Academy Staff under the direction of the City of Glendale Human Resources Department. You must be successful in each phase of the P.A.T. to continue with the selection and hiring process.

Each event is timed separately and is scored on a point system. You will receive a score upon successfully completing all of the events in the amount of time allowed for each obstacle. To successfully pass the P.A.T., you will need to earn a minimum score of 384 points combined from each of the five sections below. You will be required to successfully complete the P.A.T. before continuing to the oral examination.
